Guide Review - Kaleidoscope Jigsaw Puzzle

Kaleidoscope Jigsaw Puzzle by Ceaco puzzles features ornaments from Christopher Radko, makers of fine collectible European glass ornaments for more than 23 years.

It took one adult solver approximately eight hours to piece together the puzzle. When complete, the puzzle measures 24" x 18". My test solver found it was best to begin by sorting for color to assemble the larger ornaments and then, towards the end of the puzzle, it was easier to identify pieces based on shape. Do yourself a favor and make sure you have a large surface where there's plenty of room to turn all the pieces face up. You will need to see all the pieces at the same time as the image has a high degree of variance (many colors and objects). You will need to repeatedly refer to the image on the box when solving this puzzle.

This puzzle has great play value at a reasonable price.

The puzzle is made with 90% recycled materials and printed with vegetable-based, non-toxic inks.

Rated for ages 13 and up.
